Vermont has a rich tradition of heating with wood - and for good reason! Wood is a local, renewable fuel source that supports healthy forest management and creates jobs for our neighbors. When Vermonters heat with fossil fuels, 78 cents of every fuel dollar leaves the state, when we heat with wood, all of those funds stay right here in our communities.
FPR and the Department of Public Service have just completed the 2015 Residential Fuel Assessment. The Assessment contains a wealth of information on the use of wood heating in Vermont.
The resources and links below will help you to use these fuels safely and efficiently.
